The sad duty now his, Trump calls for unity after shooting

AP-NORC poll: Most in US think Trump meddled in Russia probe

AP-NORC poll: Most in US think Trump meddled in Russia probe

It was just baseball practice Wednesday for Republican members of Congress preparing for a charity ball game with the Democrats - until a man armed with a handgun and what has been described as a military-style rifle opened fire on those within the chainlink-enclosed Alexandria, Virginia ballfield.

Levin said he'd been traveling across California, meeting with government officials and talking about the problem of increasing political violence.

Turner said she even though she believes earnestly in opposing the president, she thought the Democratic Party had become too personal and too harsh in its criticism.

The gunman, later identified as James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois - a Sen.

Back at the White House, Trump tweeted: "Rep. Steve Scalise, one of the truly great people, is in very tough shape - but he is a real fighter".

On July 7, 2016, Micah Xavier Johnson shot and killed five police officers at the conclusion of a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas.

Police haven't stated a motive. Bernie Sanders, for whose presidential campaign the shooter had volunteered, rightly went to the Senate floor to denounce violence.

Applied Materials Incorporated (NASDAQ:AMAT) Short Interest Decreased By 2.41%
It is positive, as 52 investors sold MCD shares while 574 reduced holdings. 112 funds opened positions while 441 raised stakes. Four investment analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and nineteen have issued a buy rating to the stock.

Such an assessment could be premature. Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., taking a distinctly different tack from Ryan, proclaimed repeatedly before the cameras that the shooter was "targeting Republicans". Gabby Giffords, an Arizona Democrat, to intense partisanship, though no clear motive emerged at the gunman's trial. "It's OK to consider assassinating Trump and then. suddenly we're supposed to rise above it - until the next time?" former House Speaker Newt Gingrich asked during an appearance on Fox News in which he cited a "pattern" of "increasing hostility on the left".

"Trump is a major contributor [to] the type of violence that led to this in the first place".

"Events like today are EXACTLY why we took issue with NY elites glorifying the assassination of our President", commentator Harlan Hill wrote in a Tweet the younger Trump amplified by sharing with 1.7 million Twitter followers. It may have been the recent controversy over comedian Kathy Griffiths's photoshoot in which she posed with a bloodied, severed head that looked like that of the Mr Trump.

John Griffin, a media arts and animation professor at the Art Institute of Washington, for example, commented on Facebook about the Republican health care plan, saying: "They should be lined up and shot".

DE 105.9's Rob Petree reached out to almost every republican lawmaker in the House, and the following State Representatives agreed to issue responses. "They should be guillotined".

"This is a powder keg right now, so everyone in authority has to be very careful with the words the say", said Nina Turner, a former Democratic state senator from OH and a high-profile Sanders supporter.

Several Republican and Democratic members of the House of Representatives and Senate on Thursday said a security review was long overdue. "I think Speaker Schwartzkopf, before he begins blaming Republicans for not supporting a tax package, needs to get his own house in order and figure out which tax package it is that they are going to agree on".

Gulf mixed in early trade; Qatar National Bank slides
They have accused Doha of backing terrorist groups and close ties with Iran, something the minister denied categorically. Qatar's port authority published video Monday showing a ship arriving at Doha's Hamad Port from Oman's port of Sohar.

Steve Bongardt, who worked until 2015 as an Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent focusing on threat detection, said traditional counter-terrorism tools such as behavioral profiling and surveillance are less effective because so many otherwise harmless people post virulent messages on social media. But in the hours after the shooting, the president, whose pugnacious style has come to define this era of bruising partisanship, avoided any mention of the political debate surrounding the shooting.

Ben Shapiro, a conservative writer and radio show host, says the violent rhetoric from all viewpoints contributes to "worse politics in general".

The president, for his part, responded with a call for national unity, a show of equanimity in notable contrast to his stance during the campaign, when he sometimes encouraged violence and, at one point, seemed to invite opponents to take up arms against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

"It's been building and building", said Hetherington, who has written extensively on the country's polarization. What happened at the ballfield is "a symptom, but it's not the chief symptom".

Meanwhile, another Republican lawmaker from New York Claudia Tenney received a threatening email soon after the shooting incidence. This week, President Trump told Senate Republicans to do just that to their health care overhaul bill, and to also make it "more generous", as sources told the Associated Press.

This year, lawmakers, particularly Republicans, have experienced rowdy, overflowing town halls that they say border on unsafe.
